The silver sedan was speeding down south Lake Shore Drive when, according to police, the 18-year-old driver lost control and crashed near Foster around 1:40 a.m. Sunday.

A 14-year-old girl in the front seat was thrown from the car and into the northbound lanes. She's in critical condition at Lurie Children's Hospital. Police say a 16-year-old boy, 17-year-old boy and 19-year-old woman were also in the car, and are recovering at nearby hospitals.
